There is no worse pain for a parent than losing a child. A pain that has never left Laurence and Pierre Lemarchal, the parents of Grégory Lemarchal. 15 years after the disappearance of his son, the pain is still intense.

The year 2007 will forever remain etched in the hearts of Grégory Lemarchal’s parents. That year, Pierre Lemarchal and his wife Laurence suffered the worst ordeal parents could face.

Suffering from cystic fibrosis, the young musician died at the age of 23, leaving behind a family, but also a tearful fan. Despite the passage of time, he remains present in the hearts of those who loved him. The fight he had started against this insidious disease never lost his vigor.

More than 3 decades later, they still remember the shock they received when they were told their baby was sick. Pierre Lemarchal confided in an interview:

“We got him in the face.”

For Grégory’s parents, the worst was yet to come. In fact, the doctors hadn’t left them much hope for their baby’s chances of recovery. On the contrary, he had made them understand that their child’s life experience would be 15 years.

The young man was not disappointed with this diagnosis. Despite the breathing difficulties he had on a daily basis, he had decided to fight. In 2004 he signed up for “Star Ac”, a show for young musicians. There, the whole country fell under his spell.

His way of singing, his message, his kind gaze had really conquered the audience. On April 28, 2007, the singer launched one final challenge to the disease that had been eating him for many years.

“I’ll make you fucking sick”,

He said. The next day he fell into a coma from which he never woke up, an outcome that neither the young man nor his family expected. A few weeks earlier, he was still hoping for a lung transplant.

To the difficulty of finding a donor was added that of finding one with the same blood type as him. In fact, Grégory Lemarchal belonged to group B +, a very rare group.

On April 29, to spare his body, doctors decided to plunge him into a coma. These parents trusted that when he fell asleep, Grégory was convinced that in the next few days he would wake up, with new lungs and ready to return to the stage.

“Put me to sleep, I can’t take it anymore, but wake up very early with two brand new lungs, because I’m expected for my second album”,

he had read his parents in his eyes before the heavy veil of coma fell upon him.

LIFE MISSION: TO SAVE THOSE “GREGORS” WHO CAN

For the 20th anniversary of “Star Ac”, the production of the show honored former tele-crochet candidates. An operation that would not have been possible without mentioning the singer with the voice of an angel, Grégory Lemarchal.

Many people took the opportunity to pay homage to him such as Armande Altaï and Alexia Laroche-Joubert. His ex-girlfriend Karine Ferri was also there. She never misses an opportunity to greet her generosity of soul and pay him homage.

“For your courage for your fight that has become ours, for all those who suffer from your same” evil “. For your immense talent and the beauty of your soul, to show that you must always believe in your dreams and why the strength is in us forever “,

The 20th anniversary of “Star Ac” was also the perfect opportunity for the singer’s parents to highlight the association they created after their son died. Hoping to give cystic fibrosis patients reasons to believe in a better tomorrow, they threw themselves into this association and spared no expense.

This is how Pierre Lemarchal, as passionate about music as his son was, gives concerts in small French towns. The profits are donated to the Grégory Lemarchal association. In addition to charity concerts, the association survives thanks to donations and various events.

Among those who organize events in support of the association, there is the TF1 channel, whose programs “50mn Inside” and “Les 12 coups de midi” plan to launch an appeal for donations on the occasion of the commemoration of the singer’s death.

The Grégory Lemarchal association has worked hard to enable the general public to discover cystic fibrosis, its manifestations and its constraints on patients. He also highlighted the need to be an organ donor to help others if needed.
